obama administration quietly behind the scenes a common cause in the country that don't want to see that being demanded. the american system did muted, but it goes beyond a sort of suffering a certain amount of problems and i don't think often some people attacked it often helps and the analysis recently or couple of months ago the language used by chavez to attack the oas and they are strikingly similar. as you can imagine. so, you know, in one case the oas is an instrument of the leftists but i do think you're right. they have not engaged in number of human rights issues. if we wanted to engage the embargo to engage the process of change that's already going out in cuba and devotee that easy left. the problem was they got a little gun shy because of the loss of political capital and the years of the bush administration some people in the administration tried to politicize the human rights questions and i think that the mantra became wendi obama administration came in we cannot publicize them or get in the middle of it but i think they had gone too far and it's not just in venezuel

at the individual and the family. obama's second inaugural address coming up soon would be a good time for him to rely on the country that the government is dependent on the people, not the other way around. we also need more clarity and discussion from all of the leaders about the importance of family despite the widespread acceptance that children do better with two-parent married households despite what we know about the instability in financial hardships caused by single parents trying to raise children on their own and despite statistics about the worst educational attainment, greater criminal justice and a great welfare usage among the single parent families, despite all of that our leaders, our universities, our media and religious institutions and the leaders of the groups where the problem of single parenthood is the most severe both of the african-american and hispanic community refused to take this issue on the aggressively or deal with in any meaningful way. this problem is particularly glaring in the reporting of most of our media, which to it sometimes credit devotes

every single day across our country. because every day of the year an average of 33 americans are murdered with guns. here's another way to think about what that means. one week from today president obama will take the oath of office for his second term. and unless we take action during those four years, some 48,000 americans will be killed with guns, nearly twice as many people as were killed in combat during the entire vietnam war. when i've talked with the vice president, i have made it very clear that our bipartisan coalition of mayors is supporting seven measures, three that need legislation and four that require only executive action. and we're hopeful the president and vice president will support all seven. and i just wanted to touch on each of them briefly. first and most you urgently, wed the president and congress together to require background checks for all gun sales including private sales at gun shows and online. these private sales now account for more than 40% of all gun sales nationally which means that in 2012 alone there were more than six million gun sales that

would give the country about a 30% chance of obama and the nation experiencing an improved security of economic climate. after four years if obama is reelected. i do not suggest that the gamble should not be taken. simply, that history into playing with politics might give us pause. so what does history predicted about a second term for barack obama lacks were he reelected with so few presidents having success at that time in office. what are the challenges that face those who have trouble or failed second terms, and what about others to succeed? and ken barack obama overcome these challenges if he is reelected to become a member of that select group of presidents that waded through the quagmires of second terms come and somehow came through relatively unscathed? success in a second term does not imply that there were not failures, or significant stumbles. some even severe during that tenure. but the net impact of that time in office had to be the fulfillment of a significant number of the following measures of success. first, the president must provide defense against foreign or domes

country drifting back towards dictatorship? , >> guest: is a countries whose future is uncertain, and certainly it could become -- and already is a bit off the path of democracy in my assessment, but the battle really isn't lost. the american government -- the obama administration is trying to do what it can to stabilize things, but it lost a lot of influence with the departure of american forces. one thing that the american forces did get in the united states is more clout inside of iraq. >> host: talk about the release of a man accused of killing american soldiers. this issue that you write about in your book, "the endgame," but also some news that came out in november about the release of ali. >> guest: there's been a number of events that i think have worked against the american interest in iraq. that duke is one of them. she is an iraqi come he is a lebanese who was sent into iraq at the behest of the american courts because hezbollah is supported by iran. for the purposes of training of the shiite militia who were fighting the american troops, and he was captured along with a nu
